05/02/2011: "Historic Home Tour"

A home tour in Friday Harbor of lower Argyle Avenue historic sites kicks off the month on May 1st, 1-4pm.
Click on:If This House Could Talk-- historic home tour (pdf (1022\k file) to view the program for the home tours of historic sites in Friday Harbor.

May is National Historic Preservation Month; an annual event celebrated in the County, the Town of Friday Harbor, local organizations, and by private property owners.

The Town of Friday Harbor lost several historic buildings this year, and may lose several others in the months ahead. Though sometimes inevitable, each building demolished or relocated reduces the visual and physical evidence of San Juan Island’s rich history and sense of place.

Volunteers will be on hand to discuss the history, architectural features and stories unique to each house
on the tour. Look for the open-house signs posted at each site.
